When it comes to making hyperbolic predictions about what will happen if he doesn’t get his way, few can match Scott Lively. And you know the man who thinks gay people are responsible for the Nazi Holocaust was going to have some seriously stupid things to say about the Supreme Court’s upcoming ruling on same-sex marriage. He does not disappoint:
Absent a miracle from God or unprecedented massive wave of popular protest by America’s Christians (which would be a miracle in itself), the United States Supreme Court will declare a constitutional right to “gay marriage” by judicial fiat sometime this year…
Spiritually speaking, the official endorsement of “gay marriage” by the most powerful and influential nation on earth, and more importantly the only nation in the history of the world (other than ancient Israel) to be established on a Biblical foundation, is an act of rebellion against God not seen since Noah’s Flood. Indeed, the ancient Hebrew rabbis taught that “same-sex and bestial marriages” were the final insult to God that triggered the great flood (Talmud, Genesis Rabbah 26:5:4).
Yeah, this is just like that global flood that never happened. Just like it. I’ll skip over a bunch of moronic blather about blood moons and prophecies.
I expect some sort of severe judgment to fall on America in conjunction with this process.
Clearly homosexuality is not the only factor that will trigger the wrath of God. America bears the blood guilt of over 50 million unborn babies who have been slaughtered over the past half-century, a modern parallel to what God warned against in Leviticus 18:22. And we have broken the foremost commandment of the Decalogue and officially set other gods before Him through SCOTUS rulings in Everson v Board of Education (1947) and Torcaso v Watkins (1961), setting secular humanist government above God “and every so-called god or object of worship” (2 Thessalonians 2:4) in the policy we call colloquially “religious pluralism.”
I don’t think there is any question, Biblically, that the cultural celebration of “gay marriage” portends judgment from God. The only real question in my mind is whether it truly signals the imminent “beginning of sorrows” or is just another step in the path leading to God’s wrath at a later time. God is long-suffering, even to the most wicked of societies and He does not act until their iniquity is “full” (Genesis 15:16).
If we are on the verge of “birth pangs” we will likely know it by Passover, but in either case we should brace for serious judgment on the United States in the form of natural and/or man-made disaster if the Supreme Court established sodomy as a basis for marriage under our constitution.
And he says the Antichrist will reveal himself by September 15th, mostly because he mistakenly thinks that the gay marriage cases “will be officially filed in late March.” No, they were filed months ago. Oral argument will be heard in April. March is completely irrelevant.
